“Bringing us Together” 
Hello, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buenos Dias, Buongiorno, Aloha!

NEW – Launch of the “SAI Experiencers Sharing Circles” – Saturday, October 2, 2021.  We are delighted to host new “SAI Experiencers Sharing Circles” the first Saturday of each month, starting in October.  They’re FREE!  Facilitated by our SAI Facilitators, SAI Experiencers Sharing Circles are a confidential opportunity to share the joys and the challenges of your Spiritually Transformative Experiences™ (STEs) and spiritual journey, with a supportive and understanding group of other STE Experiencers.  Register on our SAI website.

Thank you Brian Sackett – new Vice-Chair of the SAI Experiencers Sharing Circles program. I am happy to announce that Dr. Brian Sackett PhD, SAI Advisory Board member, is the Vice-Chair of the new SAI Experiencers Sharing Circles Program.  Thank you Brian!  I, Dr. Yvonne Kason  MD, am the Chair of the program, and deeply appreciate Brian’s expertise and support. 

NEW – SAI Spanish Language Committee – “SAI en Español“.    Inspired by the great success of the Spanish Language Experiencers Panel at SAI Conference 2021, the SAI Board decided to start a Spanish Language Committee, affectionately known as “SAI en Español“, to help create a program of Spanish language events, and to promote outreach to the Spanish speaking world.  We are delighted that all three of our panel speakers, Ana Cecilia González MEd, Dr. Ingrid Honkala PhD, and Francisco Valentin enthusiastically volunteered to serve on this new committee. 

Thank you  Ana Cecilia González – Chair of the SAI Spanish Language Committee.   I am pleased to announce that Ana Cecilia González MEd, SAI Advisory Board member, has agreed to be the Chair of the new SAI Spanish Language Committee.  Thank you Ana! Ana has also very generously been volunteering for several months with translation of our SAI website into Spanish. We hope to have it live soon.

NEW – Launch of monthly SAI Spanish Language Events,  Saturday, November 13, 2021 – Francisco Valentin, speaker en Español.  
Starting November 2021, we will be hosting a SAI Spanish language event the second Saturday of each month.  We plan a featured speaker event one month, alternating with a SAI Experiencers Sharing Circle in the Spanish language, the next month. All are FREE!

We welcomed 2 new SAI Affiliated Groups in September 2021:  

  • NDE Group of Rhode Island, led by Ben Riggs
  • Conscious Spirituality Tasmania, led by Philip Crouch

SAI was delighted to welcome 2 new Affiliated Groups last month, from opposite ends of the planet! We are delighted that in just over one year our SAI family of affiliated groups has grown to 43 groups, located in 12 different countries around the world, on 5 different continents.  Wow!

Mark the Date – SAI Conference 2022 will be Saturday June 11, and Sunday June 12, 2022 – online. We plan to have outstanding international speakers on a wide array of STE related topics.  Interested in speaking at our conference?  A Call for Papers will be sent out soon.
